You should start moving your plants indoors now. Do it gradually so they won't go into shock. Start by hosing them off well to discourage hitchhiking insects. Allow them to throughly dry and then take them indoors overnight. Take them back outdoors in the morning and repeat the process, leaving them inside for longer and longer periods of time until they are spending 24 hours indoors. Enjoy!
